Greek Rhetorical Club

When we talk about rhetoric, in the context of rhetorical competition, we are referring to the skillful use of the spoken word, both in prepared speeches and in situations that demand impromptu and improvised production of speech.

Skill in public speaking, which is cultivated through systematic practice and preparation for competitions (oral interpretation, impromptu speaking, group discussion, persuasive speaking, debate) are essential for the development of self-confidence, critical thinking, well-supported argumentation, as well as team work.

Debate tournaments in particular cultivate special skills in research into current as well as timeless issues and the overall formation of participants’ personalities, while generally broadening and enhancing their intellect.
